This thread should have been started long ago for the planning of our now 2nd(?) annual April MANO, which is gonna kick ass if we still have a decent number of MA attendees. Some of the Melrose crew has gone off to College, but Fenixharth is still around and is going to college nearby, meaning that he's spread Nerf there as well.

It's the same park as before, Pine Banks, and there are pictures here.

I'd like to know who could come, and what dates in April you CANNOT do. We were hoping to not do it during people's spring break unless the majority could come then. Anyways, your weekend options are

The 5th/6th
12th/13th
19th/20th
27th/28th

THE DATE IS SATURDAY, APRIL 12TH

So if you're coming, or even if you're not sure, post back with dates that you can't do, and we'll schedule around them for the maximum turnout.

I'll also start the tally of people here -

Team_Slaya + 2-5
Fenixharth + 4+
Thomas +?
Captain +?

I'll edit this with updates and all.

You know I'm there!
I've been itching for this thread to come! (I have no life.)
I may be bringing friends and cousins this time, but don't count any +'s for me yet.
What happened to Battle of the Pines being on the 26th?

Guinea, from Foam Universe (Banned here) may be coming down, I'm not sure.
I don't know what dates I couldn't do, and I really don't care if it intrudes on my spring break, this would probably be the highlight.

I can try to make it. I don't have spring break (stupid private school schedule), so any Saturday would be preferred. Infact, I probably wouldn't be able to make it on a Sunday.

I could "bring" up to two, although one will probably post here eventually...

I can't say which date would be the best, because school might randomly interferre, but I'd like it later in the month (just so I can get some of my primaries done). But again, Saturdays would be best.

Cool, it's in Massachusetts.
Too bad I don't have any guns suited for outdoor use. (I need to buy some barrel material)

I would be more than happy to lend you a gun, and I'm sure that someone would have spares. Just bring what you have, and slap it with as many bands as possible!

It just might work...
But I don't know yet.

I do have a BBB and a firefly with the restrictors removed, maybe I could just borrow a few pieces of PVC or something and temporarily attach them.

By then I should have a good range of primaries, some coupler'd Big Blasts, and I might even give out Finesse for use (if I brass breech it and mod the dart tag, or even without). I'm sure atleast one of my friends (if they came) could lend stuff out too.

It all depends on time really. I could, possibly, have three of my next projects done by then.

Sorry, didn't really mean to hijack the topic.

I concur with Captain......about Voltron in particular. This seems like it's gonna be the Sven of east cost nerf wars; akwardly Norwegian and retired very quickly, by some manner of rabid cat, only to be replaced by a convenient yet effeminant surrogate (I'm guessing boston).

IF I am going, it will have to be the 5th or the 12th. After that, April is shot for me.

Great, lots of replies! It seems that we have a conflict with dates with two people, Philote and OMC. We'll iron out the official time in a bit, I think it's too early to set a date in stone.

As far as guns go, many of the people who frequent these games have quite an arsenal and usually spread the love at these games, so don't worry about armaments. I will need more darts though, if anyone could see how many they have that'd help my estimations.

I'm sort of interested.
Although as Slug said its a bit far.
I'm looking at a 5 hour drive, and I'm not ready to shell out that much for gas money and I don't think my car can even drive that far in one stretch without breaking down.
If anyone from NJ would be willing to pick me up on their way through NY I could chip in for gas money.
If that doesn't happen then I can't come.

So what about trading/selling and such? I realize this is a comparatively small war, but if we have anything we want to get rid of could we bring it?

I'm down for the 5th. I'm trying to convince a few friends to come, and if they do we're doing an all night dart making thing. And modding a few guns. That's only if I can order the parts of mcmaster today.

Badger did you ever post the photos from Hershfest? I would like to view them like pronto. Thanks! :D

Also how come the gallery on the front page is never updated. It would be incredible if I only had to go to one place to look at the pictures from all of the wars I have been to and I guess the ones that I haven't been to.

Also Groove never posted his "blooper" reel from his chronicles video.

What ever happened to Battle of the Pines 2?
I can't guarantee that I'll be making stefans, because I've got a pretty full plate. Sorry, the last batch I made, we lost all the darts in Maine somehow.

Even though it's only two weeks away, the 5th could work. I doubt it interferes with vacation plans, and OMC can come.

Skitzo, you might want to PM OMC about his travel plans; maybe you could hitch a ride and split the cost.

Can anyone give me definite numbers for who they're bringing? IF we decide on a date I think that'll help.

OfAll, and everyone else, definitely bring stuff to sell. I always bring extra money in case I want to get something, and OMC usually stocks up his car with PETG and goodies for all involved, provided they give him money.

Unfortunately, I will have to withdraw from this war. I wrecked my ankle at ECNO this past weekend. I MAY be 100% by that weekend, but I'd rather not chance it. If anything changes I will let you all know. Otherwise, count me out.

I'm still going. I don't know if my friends want to go. I may or may not be bringing my cousin. So possibly plus one for me.
